    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Western Digital (New Delhi (India)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    SanDisk Western Digital was a company in out campus and they offered the role of a Technical Intern. The screening test was an online objective test with 40 questions to be answered in 45 minutes. It had 10 aptitude questions and the remaining from C,C++ and Analog and Digital Electronics. The test had negative marking too. The results were announced in a week almost and 13 students were shortlisted. We had a telephonic interview after that. It comprised of questions related to my resume, data structures, OOPS concepts and SQL. Since I told them that I was comfortable with Java, they asked me questions from Java too. Some questions from SQL were also asked. They took every minute detail of the preojects that I had on my resume. The last question was: "Do you want to ask something". This indeed is a question to which we should reply intelligently. Try to ask a good question, it shows your interest in the firm. The interview lasted for 30 mins. Results were announced in 2 weeks almost.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Western Digital (Irvine, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Pleasant and professional; low key. I met with the talent acquisitions partner and the lead hiring manager for the position. The talent partner asked a few questions regarding my background but not the typical HR type questions - it was mostly a discussion based on my resume. The hiring manager asked more questions about my legal technical experience.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Western Digital (Irvine, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    So initially I submitted my resume to Western Digital. Western Digital then usually emails you to setup phone screen with the hiring manager. In the phone screen the hiring manager asks questions about projects that you have worked on and also some technical questions. Make sure you know your resume. If that goes well then an onsite interview will happen. In that onsite interview you get to meet with the hiring manager along with some engineers on the team. First they usually give you a test to take within an hour time frame. This test material is related to the job itself. After the test is done then you sit in a conference room and get drilled with technical questions from multiple engineers. These questions usually consist of standard programming questions along with testing questions etc. These questions will depend on the position

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question had to do with a programming question I was given.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Once you get the job you will get email stating base salary you will be given. This depends on your level of education and job experience. Generally salaries are non-negotiable unless you have an offer from another company. If so then WD may or may not match the offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Western Digital (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    Applied through my college career fair. Got called in to take a test and then again for the in person interview. The interviews started with breakfast with a group of other candidates. My group consisted of mostly UCI students so the conversation seemed geared towards them. I quickly felt left out and sometimes picked on for being from a different college. By the time for the one on ones, I could see that the culture did not fit with me and only continued for the interview practice.
